Parenting with Grace Devotional

I don't know about you, but it seems that parents need more grace with their children more than ever. I have seen some super tantrums and some kids do not ever grow out of them, even when they get to college (my roommate). I would really like to meet some of those parents.

But in this generation, kids are in their entitlement attitudes, which some are brought up by their parents, but others are being influenced by the society who believe in materialism. When the iphone 6 came out, the mall was in chaos and havoc because of a new piece of technology. When the new kids movie comes out, everyone rushes to see it or gets the new video console.

Every child I have ever observed this year thinks that because they are important in their family, they are entitled to some rights. For example, a student introduced himself as the cafeteria worker's grandson. Apparently, he thought it was a big deal and that I should take a note of it. He uses that excuse a lot to get out of doing homework or classwork. I fixed that problem really quickly (recess detention).

But even a midst all these problems, parents still need a huge dose of grace because more and more parents are going to work. There are more working parents than stay at home mom and children are swept to the side for an added income to the family.

This devotional will come in handy for parents with school-aged children. The Once-A-Day Nurturing Great Kids Devotional helps you to bring God into your parenting by providing 365 daily devotionals written specifically for parents who are seeking to build a stronger relationship with their kids and put God first in their family. These devotionals will inspire you as a parent to embrace the role that God has given you, while also equipping you with the tools you need to be a strong Christian role model for your children.
